Cabinet can’t bypass CTC

| 03/11/2009

(CNS): Despite claims by the leader of government business that the Central Tendering Committee process can be by-passed for the development of the cruise berthing facilities, the auditor general has said that this is not the case and that the committee must still be involved. Responding to McKeeva Bush’s comments in the media that he would sue both the auditor general and the governor if they tried to stop him and lost the country money, Duguay told CNS that it was his job to ensure the proper process according to the Public Management and Finance Law is followed for all government projects.

Duguay explained that Section 35 of the PMFL sets out clearly the process that has to be followed on all projects worth over $250,000. Bush has told the Caymanian Compass, “Cabinet can, in the interests of the country, decide these things….Cabinet can say ‘yes, it goes to Central Tenders’ or ‘no, it doesn’t.”  However, Duguay said that unless the law had been changed that was simply not true.

While the full process can be circumvented on some occasions for various reasons relating to special circumstances and unique expertise, the CTC must still be consulted and involved. The AG stated that and if in this case ‘expressions of interest’ are going straight to a contract, that is not a decision that can be made just by Cabinet. Duguay also noted his particular concerns that the committee which had selected the criteria was made up of four politicians.

Duguay said whether Bush intended to sue him or not it was perfectly legitimate for his office to do an audit on this process given the size of the project. He said he was sure that whoever was going to invest in this development would want to ensure that the proper process had been followed. 

“The financing and ownership arrangements on this project remain unclear and there are numerous other questions which my office would like to understand and so we are beginning to gather information as we wait on the imminent announcement of a contract,” Duguay added.

Following the accusations Bush had made that the auditor general was not acting on his own in announcing the audit and that he saw an “agenda” to stifle every investment opportunity, Duguay stated that the only agenda he had was to see that proper procedure had been followed.

“I am acting alone in this decision and there is no agenda to stifle investment and I am sure the investors will be glad that the process will be properly examined,” Duguay said, confirming that Bush had called him over the weekend to express his displeasure that the AG had made a decision to undertake the audit.

In his role as AG, Duguay must decide on which audits he needs to undertake to ensure transparency and value for money in decisions affecting all government assets. Bush accused the auditor general of ignoring problem projects undertaken by the previous administration, such as the schools and asked why he hadn’t audited former tourism minister Charles Clifford’s port plans which also bypassed the Central Tenders Committee.

Duguay explained that the previous port project only went as far as a Memorandum of Understanding with the Atlantic Star developer but not a contract and had it done so he probably would have wanted to audit the process. He also observed that the schools did go through the CTC.

At a PPM council meeting on Monday night, Alden McLaughlin reminded party supporters that this was the old problem of McKeeva Bush not going through the proper CTC process rearing its ugly head yet again. McLaughlin observed that the LoGB’s claims that the AG was treating the previous administration and the current administration differently were unfounded because the PPM followed the law.

“You can say the schools may be costing too much but the award of that contract was not made by us it was made by the Central Tendering Committee, which is why the AG had not seen the need for an audit,” McLaughlin said. He added that it was a dangerous precedent to set up a committee of politicians and have them say who will get a contract. “When there is that level of political involvement we are unlikely to get value for money as it is going to go to people who are going to support the politicians.”

McLaughlin said that the reason why the law was established to ensure all contracts over $250,000 go to CTC was to take politics and nepotism out of the decision and get the best person for the job, not the best person for politics.

However, Bush has remained undeterred and continues to defend the way the project is moving along. Speaking on Rooster’s phone in show, Crosstalk, on Tuesday morning, he said that government was not spending any money on the project, one which was badly needed, as the cruise industry was in jeopardy and it was a priority for the country. “We are not spending anything on this,” he said. “So there is no value for money issue.”

He said he would make sure the project was in the best interest of the country and there would be an environmental assessment done to see how it could affect Seven Mile Beach, but that no governor, no auditor and no opposition knew the situation better that McKeeva Bush. Asked about the recent FCCA report and the evidence that cruise tourism in Cayman is doing well, with 90% of visitors coming of the ships, Bush dismissed it and said there were other issues at work making Cayman lose money.

The decision on who will be offered the port project is expected to be finalized today during the Cabinet meeting. CNS understands that a consortium of local developers working with the Dart Group will be taking the lead on the project with backing from a major cruise line. It is also speculated that Misener Marine, the company involved in the previous Royal Watler Cruise Terminal project, will be involved in the construction of the two cruise piers.

    Notice how the Auditor General or the Governor didn’t feel that the Tax Review the UK wants is being rushed?

    Ask them if the selection of those persons to do the review should be sent to CTC?

    This is going to be a Northern Ireland soon.

    Mr. Duguay has forgotten that since the UDP has been elected, the Government is actually now Mr. McKeeva Bush. And Mr. Bush does what he wants to do no matter what the law states. He has done it his way for so long and he will do so longer. The contracts will go to who supports Mr. Bush in the best way, not to who gives the best value to the the Cayman Government.
     
    I will offer some advice to Mr. Duguay, get plenty of paper as you will need to write a lot of reports over the next 3 Years. And oh yes those two on the Chicken Radio, they speaketh with the same tongue that Bush speaketh with. Be careful how they try to make you believe they are talk show host.

    McDinejad must have forgotten how the Turtle Farm redevelopment was carried out. The entire development was split into many small projects, each costing less than $100K (the maximum amount to pass under the CTC radar at the time) so small contractors (voters?) in West Bay could get contracts for such things as building fish tanks that leaked like seives and added about $5M to the budgeted cost.

    If Stephan had only broken that pier into one hundred ten foot sections of pier then the UDP sub-contracting supporters could have been granted sections to build which could have then been resold to Dart.

    This man represents the will of the Caymanians to the world.  It is his job and what he has been elected to do. Obviously what he is doing and how he is going about it is the will of the Caymanian voters.  So it goes without saying that Caymanians are not into abiding by the laws if the laws keep them from getting what they want. Everyone keeps saying Bush this and Bush that but Bush is the voice of the Caymanian people.  So that means that what is happening is that Cayman is now under attack by its own people.  Its like a dog bitting its own tail.  This dog will not have a very good or long life.

    If he is not the voice of the Caymanian people then they need to start speaking louder than he is to be heard.

    Please continue your excellent work.

    Macs tirade is no surprise to me (nor to many others). Thing is, Kurt was not much better…remember his tirade against the HRC for "doing its job"?

    Cayman really needs some new sensible leaders…not these we have where they throw a fit like a spoilt bully when anyone dares to disagree with them…or sometimes it only takes someone to ask a question they don’t like.

    This is a HUGE undertaking…and as such it should certainly go through the CTC…and a proper independant Environmental study done by a reputable firm.

    Imagine, this man wants 5 people (4 of which are his politicians) and a Chairman he chose (none of which have ANY relevant experience) to authorise this MASSIVE project that has the real liklihood of causing major negative consequences for Cayman.

    And now he dismisses the report from FCCA that most cruise pasengers already disembark while here.

    The arrogance and egotisism is alarming.

    Mr. Bush continues to say "this project is badly needed" for the country. That is besides the point. You have a bidding process to ensure the best candidate gets the job and cronyism does not prevail. There are a lot of contractors who badly need work and don’t take kindly to being denied a fair opportunity to bidon a project simply because you have made your choice before the "bidding" even started. There were some highly experienced bidders who applied for the contract – firms with FAR more experience than the Dart group has. Mr. Bush is proving all the stereotypes of a little island true. Cayman is becoming the laughing stock of the offshore world.

    I find it quite amazing that the AG believes the PMFL relates to this. I have reviewed the law found at the following address:

    “http://www.cimoney.com.ky/section/regulatoryframework/default.aspx?id=132”

    I cannot find anywhere in that law where this port situation applies to the PMFL. The PMFL clearly talks about Government’s money and budgeting, etc but nothing about concessional type agreements where no Government money is at risk. Clearly the AG is Grandstanding as usual and the press is supporting him in doing so. As the AG obviously reads these posts each day, maybe he can point me to the section that applies and explain how it applies. Happy to be corrected. If not, get on with your work quietly and leave the press to the politicians. Thanks in advance, sir.

    And from the political side, since this was given as an example of good governance, what the PPM needs to explain is how the base conditions (the mandatory timetables, scope of work, contract conditions, etc) of the schools tender changed after CTC reviewed it without going back to CTC and to all the other bidders! That is what AG/PPM should be talking about and that is what Alden needs to let us know about. Wrong example of proper CTC and bidding procedures, Mr. McLaughlin! That example merely shows that one can get around the CTC bidding if you are clever enough, even after going to CTC!.

    Let’s get this pier built before another election comes…in Cayman we talk and talk and talk and get nothing done.

    Mac, take the heat but get it done before you loose your investors…!! ( I am sure Gov, Bryant and Foot would love that to occur)

     My understanding is that the money that usually gets paid to public coffers by the cruise ship companies for each person landed here  will go to pay for this.

     If that is the case then it is public funds, however indirectly, that is paying for the berthing docks.  I wish Mister Bush could tell the truth for once.  Then  again pigs may fly one day.

    In the best interests of the country ?????

    It is time we all wake up and smell the coffee, as the new Premier of the Cayman Islands who ironically voted against supporting the constitution is being made the first Premier of the country this week which he is now selling down the drain. Sell it all – Ports, Sewage, Water, Garbage, Turtle Farm, Pedro, dredging of North Sound, Airport etc etc etc.

    The Port development project is actually the largest infrastructural project in the history of the Cayman Islands and appears to be already shrouded in secret political wheeling and dealing. All cabinet members will be equally responsible to the country and their electorate for supporting the current process and lack of procedures being followed. These cabinet members forget that they work for the people of this country and not themselves, and should therefore remind themselves of this important fact.

    Thank you AG, Mr. Dan Duguay for looking out for the best interests of the Cayman Islands before it is too late.

    The port contract is being awarded to a group based on, no drawings, no engineering and no design and therefore NO price. "Expressions of Interest"  from 12 qualifying parties is all that has been received thus far.

    The correct and ethical way to conduct the process is to short list three qualifying "expressions of interest" then send them off for competitive tendering based on design, engineering and financing, together with their drawings and plans for the project to be submitted with their price for the works. Don’t be fooled, conceptual designs and engineering details with pricing can be quickly complied by professionals who are involved in doing offshore marine construction and development work as being their primary area of business.

    Who in their right mind would hand a project of this magnitude to a contractor without a competitive tender and a price.

    Design, build and finance – How does the country know that we are getting value for money. If you believe the Premier, that the country owns the asset of the Port, but is not responsible for the payment of the costs associated with the construction and financing this project, then its time to return back to school and commence your education again.

      As a former auditor I am bemused by all the responses to this and other articles posted on the website. Basically threatening an auditor is a complete waste of time. Fire one and another comes along. It is as simple as that. My old firm was fired several times because we refused to bow down to the owners and rollover. Fees were incidental. If Dan gets fired he will get lots of offers and ones without a hassle. He is actually doing us all a favour.

      The new Premier and Minister of Finance was a member of the board of directors of First Cayman Bank. I know of one report by the auditors that basically said the bank was a bunch of rubbish. Yet Government who met with the auditors continued to let it have a licence. That lasted about one year when the liquidators marched in. And who was in Government at the time? Yes, our new Minister of Finance. Beam me up Scotty. No wonder we have problems with the FCO.

      It would not surprise me if this is the subject of the new investigation following Tempora as well as all the other investigations of the AG. Clearly something is up.
